Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA) is part of the Omega 3 families. It is often overlooked due to attention given its siblings, EPA and DHA. ALA is the precursor to EPA and EPA is the precursor to DHA. Just EPA and DHA, ALA also comes with its own set of benefits such as protection against various cancer, lower unhealthy cholesterol, lower high blood pressure, improve mood, protects against cardiovascular diseases, fight arthritis and reduce intestinal problems. Though ALA is the precursor to EPA, it is poorly converted by our body (about 5%) therefore it is necessary to take EPA and DHA separately. The softgel is made of gelatin (not suitable for vegetarian), fairly large (same size as standard fish oil softgel) but easily swallowed. As it consists of flax oil which oxidised easily, it is best kept in the refrigerator. I would recommend taking 3 daily. The price is fair for 200 softgels, the best value for money and has no smell. It will last slightly more than 2 months if taken 3 daily. Be careful not to confuse this product with Alpha Liploic Acid which is commonly used for its antioxidant properties.

And I would say it's doing its job. I know the effects of taking flaxseed oil... well for me, anyway. It makes me lose weight, my skin is more supple...I feel better emotionally, and my libido gets crazy, y'all. When that happens I know its the flaxseed oil. And it took about 2-3 weeks for the effects to kick in. Good stuff.
It really works for cancer!암에 정말 효과 짱!

My-12 year-old Maltese dog has breast cancer. She was depressed, weak and skinny. My vet refused to remove tumors because she is old and weak. I was worried. I happened to see one who had a dog with the same breast cancer. I did what the dog owner did. She had the followings: -AHCC(manufactured by Jarrow Formulas), -Artemisinin(manufactured by Doctor's Best), -Organic flax seed oil(manufactured by Jarrow Formulas), -Daily Best Senior for Dogs(manufactured by Pet Naturals of Vermont), -Brazilian Green Propolis(manufactured by Apiario) 3~4 drops -Later on, calcium citrate and lutein are added for bone and eye health. -Shik-hae, which is one kind of fermented Korean traditional beverage because it is made from wheat sprouts. Wheat sprouts has big amount of SOD and my vet recommended me to give her. I made Shikhae without any sugar or sweetener. -At least more than 30 minutes of exercise is needed every day! I gave her chicken chest meat mainly and very small amount of cooked brown rice every day. I seldom give her the food which is rich in carbohydrate and iron because they are extremely harmful for cancer patients. I’m so happy and amazed at the result! She is really healthy, energetic and lively. Tumors have been shrunken a bit. Thank you very much for giving me best products at reasonable price.
good for the skin
